Annie Henry is finding out that being the governor’s daughter in colonial Virginia comes with its own set of problems.
Annie’s father, the great American patriot Patrick Henry, has been elected governor of Virginia. And that means 12-year-old Annie has a new home—the governor’s mansion in Williamsburg. Most girls would be thrilled, but to Annie, it seems like more trouble than it’s worth.
There’s a scary stranger who keeps bothering her, simply because her dad is “important.” And people in the capital city expect a politician’s daughter to act a certain way. Even her new school is very different.
All in all, these changes are a little frightening to Annie. Especially when she realizes that as she’s changing, she’s growing apart from her father and feeling more and more like God is far away too.
Should she tell anyone about what’s going on? Or does “growing up” mean handling problems by herself?
